Temperature: Mode of Human Relations

"Cholum Lahsung" means "It is hot (weather)", and "Khebah Lahsung" means "It is cold."

The Sherpa terms on temperature are not just about the extents of movements of molecules in the air.  If there are many people it would be regarded "Cholum Lahsung", and if not it be "Khebah Lahsung".  It rather be defined by a mode of human relations.

A Sherpa large family - it involves "hot" mood
